LeBron James showed up the Toronto Raptors in more ways than one on Wednesday night. James scored 39 points on 14 shots in a clowning that put the Cleveland Cavaliers up 2-0 in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
On Wednesday night, LeBron James spun the ball on one hand twice in front of Serge Ibaka before casually draining a three, one of his four on the night. It looked a lot like what James does before shooting free throws.
Video of the clip caused a bit of controversy in the days that followed. Some say James was showing up the Raptors with the move, and other former NBA players like Chauncy Billups said he wouldn’t let that happen if he were playing LeBron.
